New wrinkles under my eyes after Botox for crow's feet
By Natalie2539 on 11 May 2012
Hi everyone who has/is going through the same thing as me! Your stories have been inspirational and I sympathize with your botox for crow's feet leading to undesireable effects. I had Botox injected for the first time ever, only in my crow's feet. However, the "nurse" injected ten units of Botox on each side, and I actually felt the injection under my outer eye rim, so I should have known. Now, while my crow's feet are invisable, I have a new weird wrinkly appearance under my right eye (and my right eye only, which I feel makes it look even worse). I've read all your posts, and it seems like most of you only had five units injected into the crow's feet. The med spa I went to had a "special" for $200 for 20 units of Botox, and I feel the nurse used it all up to keep me from carrying over my extra units to the next visit. I have a bridal portrait scheduled for June 13th and I fear I will not look okay for it and should move it back. My wedding is on September 29th, and I'm pretty hopeful that all the undesired side effects will be gone by then (5 months post treatment) but I'm so scared! I noticed no one has posted on this thread in a while. Have you all recovered, and if so, how long did it take (I gather eight weeks is the turning point)... Should I plan on rescheduling my portrait session for later? Also, I've contacted PS's who claim they can "fix" my problem with a slight amopunt of Botox where the new wrinkles are, but I've heard this can lead to a droopy lower eyelid and other issues, so do you think I should just wait it out? PLEASE - sorry for the run-on paragraph, but any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
